seating accommodation has been
changed completely around, carpenters have been working all hours of
the day and night erecting a splendid
tier of ringside seats ln the space
formerly used as a corridor.   Hack ot
these tbree tiers of chairs Is the walk ! vetsol*,
which will allow tho spectators at the|r!ed away
games to stretch tbelr feet during tbe
Intervals between the periods. Fur
tber to the wall is ample apace which
can be rilled with more seats If neces
sary and will also allow standing room
to the late birds.
Boxes at the Ends.
The boxes nt either end of the Ice
ahvet of course will be de luxe affairs
and thcBr have for the most part been
spoken for for the remainder ot the
aeason.
Excepting of course the first row
of ringside seats the finest view of
the games will be from the gallery
which Is so placed as to allow the
spectator to view the game at all
nnglea and the absence of the heavy
timbers, as noticed on the ground floor
will do much to make this section a
popular place among the regular attendants at the games.
The skating season, aa noted above,
will start st 7:30 o'clock tomorrow
evening but it may be poalblo for the
profesional hockey team to hold a
workout this evening preparatory to
their game against tho Terminals In
Vancouver on Tuesday evening. This
has not yet been decided upon but is
extremely potslble and lt will afford
the opportunity to those who have
never seen a hockey game to get a
glimpse of the speed artists who uphold tbe name of Westminster In the

hear.ngs, covering the fourteen
schedules of the present law along
with the free list and uilscellcaiieoui,
articles and general -administrative
provisions, will come to a close with
tbe end of this week. The wool schedule, perhaps the most formidable ot
all from the tariff maker's standpoint,
will be taken up tomorrow with pros
pecta for a liveljf session and plenty
of arguments from wool grower*),
manufacturers, importers and clothiers.
The National Association of Growers und Manufacturers are expected
to appear In force to fight for retention of the present tariff.
The Importance of the schedule io
shown by the average of 60 per cent,

THE GOSPEL OF WORK.
Too frequently banquets and gatherings of a like genial
nature are made the occasion of much mutual admiration,
of high flown effusions upon the glorious future lying before ourselves and our country. We are glad to state that
the speeches at the banquets given last week by the Board
of Trade and by the Progressive association and the city
council to the Fraser Valley Publicity bureau were remarkable for the evident appreciation of the speakers of
the worth of the gospel of work as contrasted with the fallacy of booming.
For once we were told in clear, concise words something of those problems that Westminster as a city, that
British Columbia as a province, is facing today. We were
told how some of them had been practically overcome, the
path was suggested for the surmounting of others.
Through all their utterances it stood out plainly both
that the speakers had realized that success can come only
by united effort, and that they as individuals and as representatives of the public were prepared to ignore trifling
matters of contention and to co-operate along broad and
sure lines with their neighbors..
Tonight the 1913 council gets publicly into harness.
Mayor Gray has told us plainly what it is intended to do
this year. The council has over a million dollars with
which to carry out projected work, and that it has this
money is at once a matter of congratulation to the citizens
and a tribute to the foresight of last year's administration. We have been assured that during the coming year
the voters will be asked for no more and no less additional
funds than are absolutely necessary.
In the mayor's own words the council stands for prO-

It was early discovered that on the

oould be taken out of the cliffs with I

of the governors of Nova Scotia fond-1
ly   imagined  It  wise   to   work   these

granted for such uses.
Meanwhile Lord William Campbell
had ventured to grant licenses for the

There is another point respecting these two gatherings that is worthy of notice and to which indeed reference
was made. In Westminster as indeed in the whole province, our growth must necessarily be accompanied by the
arrival of new men. That sometime new comers have
proved their worth in the city is borne out by the fact that
for the past fifty-two years the men who have guided the
destinies of New Westminster have been drawn exclusively from their ranks.

ATTACKS VIVISECTION ABUSE
Dr. Doyen of Paris Denounces Torture With Scientific Result.
Paris, January 26.���French medical
circles ara unperturbed by the attack
by Dr. Doyen on surgeonB who practice vivisection, wlthouL he asserts,
the smallest chance of adding to the
r.ew discoveries of medical science.
"Vivisection ls a duty," Bays Dr.
Doyen, "If tho experiments are llekly
n result In discoveries wblch will relieve human Bufferings, but an odious
cruelty when, as hanpens every day.
the torture of animals cannot -further
scientific progress."
Thousands of ambitious medical students, according to Dr. Doyen, are
imitating Pasteur, Behrliig, and Roux,
of whose work they bave no proper
conception, and devote themselves to
the Investigation of Infectious diseases
not in animals wherein such diseases
ordlnarllly occur, but In small labor-
"tory animals, easy to obtain. Thus,
by artificial Inoculation, abnormal ma-
ladles have been created In species
of animals wherein the organic reaction against vims Is misleading.
Dr. Dowen gives a few examples of
this. A few years ago scientists announced the discovery of an anti-
plague vaccine and scrum, which wben
tested on a guinea pig were successful, but failed when tested on a man.
It Is easy to vaccinate the guinea pig
aglnst the comma bacillus, but not
man.
It Is also useless, says Dr. Dowen,
to torture dogs and horses ln veterinary schools. Medical sti lcnts learn
their profession by operating on the
dead body. Veterlnarrles should do
the same. Dr. Doyen says thst Pasteur, who puts dogs and horses under
an anesthetic before trepanning them,
would, if alive, be the first to protest against what Doyen calls the
present abuse ot vivisection.

Dr. Parkin's Book Upon
Rhodes9 Scholarships
"The nhodes' Scholarships," by Dr.
0. H. Parkin, ls published ln Canada
by Tbe Copp-Clark Company, of Toronto, ln Great Britain by Constable &
Company, and the United States by
Houghton Mifflin & Company. Reasons for publishing the book are given
by Dr. Parkin ln a preface.
Experience has already taught the
trustees that to obtain the best, results from the system which has been
. evolved publicity Ib necessary. All
matters of Interest connected wltb the
Trust, Its Inception, Its history, Its
alms, its problems, the opportunities
It offers and Its methods of administration should be placed in some
readily accessible form.
The scholarship endowment Is
made In perpetuity. Its methods of
administration must be chsnged from
time to time. If the system ls to kept
efficient It can only be through the cooperation of educational authorities ln
many parts of the world. The committees of selection should have the
clearest possible Idea of the principles
which should govern their choice.
New members of these committees
ought to be able to Inform themselves
about the Trust and Its history. The
scholars should be able to learn about
the Trust and how best they can make
use of their scholarships.
Finally It ts desirable that the
scholars should know about the life
of the man who founded the Trust.
For all these reasons. Dr. Parkin
sought, and obtained the consent of
the trustees to the publication of the
volume on "The Rhodes Scholarships."
Divisions of the Book.
The first part of the book is taken
up with a brief and Interesting biography of Cecil Rhodes. This Is followed by chapters on Rhodes' will,
Oxford University and Its colleges,
methods of selection, age limits and
collegiate standing, and the university system.
So far the book Is written by Dr.
Parkin. The divisions which follow,
The Social Side of Oxford Life, Oxford and the Empire, America, Germany; The Scholar; and the conclusion are by Mr. F. J. Wylie wbo has
tbe administration ot the trust In Oxford itself and wbo acts as intermediary between the elected scholars,
the colleges and the university.
Force,   Imagination,  Pathos.
As It appeals to those who will cooperate ln the administration of the
Trust, the book Is a clear and valuable statement of much which It ls
necessary for them to know. The
general public will be most Interested
In the life ot Rhodes.
It leaves a remarkable Impression of
force of character, imagination and
pathos. There Is something extremely pathetic in the story of
Rhodes' life. As his biographer says,
he seemed to be ln haste to get his
work done. He knew thst as far as he
could tell his time would be short.
This consciousness of the need of
haste must have been Joined with the
knowledge that few had the force to
accomplish what he could In an ordinary lifetime.
One of the last glimpses given of
him Is during the visit of a friend.
Tbey had been discussing variour
questions but after a time the friend
noticed that Rhodes fell silent
When the friend looked at htm he
saw -that Rhodes eyes were watching
the pulses in his wrists which beat
fiercely and then checked and beat
fiercely again. He understood why
Rhodes was silent and pressing his
hand he left him.
Dream of an Oxford Degree.
Rhodes was born In the Vicarage of
Bishop's Stortford Parish-, in the
County of Herts, Englsnd, July 5th,
1853. He was the fifth of nine sons.
He received his early education at
Bishop's Stortford Grammar School.
He was "a delicate-looking but not a
delicate boy, and possessed a retiring
nature and a high, proud spirit"
He left school In 1889 and continued
his' classical rending under the direction of his father. His health was not
good and It was decided that he ahould
Join another brother who had gone to
South Africa to take up a tanning
life. He sailed from England In 1870
and atUr a voyage of 70 days landed
at Durban.
He followed farming for a time,
then Joined the diamond rush In 1871,
and left for the diggings In an ox-cart,
taking with blm a bucket, a spade, several volumes of the classics and a
Greek lexicon. Ills energy soon began to achieve results. As soon as he
wu prosperous his old dream of entering Oxford University returned.
He returned to England In 1873,
matriculated and entered as a member of Oriel College. A few months
showed thst hi* health oould not stand
the English climate. He returned to
South Africa, and In the following
years alternated between Oxford and
Africa.
It was eight years before he took
his degree. He reverenced the great
centre of literary culture, but this did
not Interfere with the fuU development ot hit practical business powers.
About the same Urn* at he graduated
he was elected to tto Cape legislature.
After this the chief event* of hit life
are generally known; hit connection
with the diamond consolidation, the
Jaml-won Raid, snd hla return to England to conduct tome business In
which he felt that hit name wat Involved, although he kntw that It
would probably ooet him bit life.
The great Idea ot hla life, the plan
which had been behind all his efforts,
was made known to" the world ln his
will.
Conditional Gift te Parnell.
Two ot the most interesting smaller
incidents related in the biography refer to Rhodes' connection with Home
Rule and hit Interest ln Canadian affairs. Rhodes gave Parnell ten thou-,
���and poundt for the Irish Home Rule
fund, but only after having received
written assurance from the Irish leader that no measure ot Home Rule
that ho proposed would Interfere with
the consolidation of the empire on
some federal plan.
He explained the transaction to his
constituents in South Africa In the following terms: "I gave that money to
hit cause because ln It lies the key of
the Federal system, on the basis of
the perfect Home Rule for every part
of the empire and In It also the Imperial tie begins." "
Among Rhodes' -paper* after hit
death wat found scd|,y of a letter ad
dressed to Sir John Macdonald, congratulating him on having won an election in which questions touching preferential trade with Great Britain had
been Involved. The letter was dated
May 8th, 1891, four days before Sir
John suffered the stroke of paralysis
which resulted ln his death.
A   Tie   With  the   Mother   Land.
"I wish to write and congratulate
you on winning the elections In Canada. I read your manifesto and I understand the Issue. If I might express a wish, lt would be that we
could meet before stern fate claims
us.
I might write pages, but I feel I
know you and your politics as If we
had been friends for years. The
whole thing lies In the question: Can
we Invent some tie with our Mother
Country that will prevent separation?
It must be a practical one, for future
generations will not be born In England.
The curse ls that English politicians cannot see the future. They
think they will always be the manufacturing mart of the world, but they
do not understand what protection
coupled with reciprocal relation
means. I have taken the liberty of
writing to you, and If you honor me
with an answer I will write again"
A Magnificent Conception.
Rhodes himself died ln 1902. Whatever else he accomplished towards the
federation of the empire, his great
plan of bringing students not OGly
from all parts of the empire but from
the United States and Germany to
England and Oxford Is a magnificent
conception.
Not the least tribute paid by Dr.
Parkin to the greatness of Rhodes'
character ls the testimony that he did
not hamper the administrators of the
Trust In any way by the Imposition of
his own Ideas. They have been left
free to carry out Rhodes' Ideas as
seems good to them.

MILITARY SERVICE
In the Universities with Good Will-
President Falconer Approves If
Plan Is Optional.
Toropto, Jan. 26.���The educational
facilities of Toronto University are
broadening. Now it would appear
that future graduates will carry away
with them an adequate knowledge of
practical military training ln addition
to scholastic attainment.
Despatches which signify the intention of Hon. Sam Hughes to establish drill halls at Toronto and McGill
are now attracting considerable comment In these institutions, and In this
city sentiment Is wholly ln favor.
The idea, which originates In British universities, is of baving officers'
training schools for instruction in
military affairs.
President Falconer approves the
Idea as long as compulsion ls not required.
"The Board of Governors and the
Senate," he said, "have decided some
time since that an opportunity for
military training should be provided,
and Intend to accept the Minister of
Militia's offer of an excellent oppor-
tulty. The plan as completed will
provide for some organization connected solely with the university, and
not with the local mllltla."
Among the professors the scheme ls
very popular.
"I regard the drill hall and the Idea
It represents as eminently desirable,"
said Dr. J. T. Fotheringham. "The

THE  8COUT  RANGERS.
Ontario Officials Take Important Step
to Cope With Problem of Older
Boys.
One of the greatest problems which
officials of the Boy Scout movement
today are fact to face with Is the prob-
lcm of retaining the Interest of the
older boys. In all places where the
movement has been established It has
become apparent that when tbe average Scout reaches the age of 16, providing he had entered the ranks wben
12 years old, he begins to lose Interest
Many plans have been tried in the
Old Country and elsewhere to cope
with this state ot affairs, with Indifferent success. Officials of the
movement ln Ontario, however, have
perfected a scheme which should
serve its purpose admirably and which
promises to meet with the desired success.
The scheme consists of the formation of an organization to be known
as "The Scout Rangers," and its comprehensive character and practical
adaptability is shown ln the following
official notice of the move:
It ls noticed that a large number of
the boys appear to lose Interest In
the movement at about 16 years of age
and perhaps quite natural, providing
they entered the ranks at 12 years of
age they have then served four years,
and In order to retain   them    some

In the acquisition. I have no doubt

over tho four years thus allowing three
hundred to be turned out every graduation day."
Prof. Alfred Baker champions tbe
Idea warmly.
"One of the best things possible for
the university," he said. "Those who
are continually talking peace are nothing better than annexationists.   It ls

I.ondon. Jan. 26.���The completion
of the Nile dam at Assuan on Dec. 23
was one of the most Important and
daring works of modern engineering.
The design of the work and the choice
ot site are due to Sir William Will-
To paraphrase Sir William Will-
cocks' own words, the dam and the
services It renders Egypt are but the
outcome of an age long series ot ef
forts for the Irrigation' of the country
begun In the remote past when Menes
constructed the great dike at Memphis.
The system then Inaugurated and
known aa basin irrigation It the system of flooding the cultivable lands
during the annual rise ot the Nile,
thereby securing a thorough refreshment ot the toil and s plentiful tup-
ply of subsoil water which may be
raised by mechanical means after the
river hat (alien. This tyttem has
been maintained ever since and given
the Egyptian climate, and the quality
and conditions of the Nile flood basin,
irrigation haa stood without a rival
aa a. practical scheme of hydraulic engineering tor many thousands of
years.
ln those ancient times the absence
of masonry regulators made lt more
difficult to control floods than to pro-,
vide additional water. Nowadayt tho
provision of additional water Is more
difficult than protection from floodt.
Both, However, ar* equally Important
The need for additional water wat
felt 90 yeart ago when modern conditions snd requirements began to affect Egypt
Efforts wer* mad* by th* distinguished French engineers In th* em-
ployment of Mehemet Ail Pasha to design works that thould make a more
extended ut* of th* fertilising Nile
flood. The** tentative ideas and efforts were s move In tho right direction, but fortunately Mehemet All wat
deterred by hit European ndvlsers
from executing them on hit own lines;
tor he desired to pull down the Great
Pyramid to furnish ttone for hit Nile
dam.
Later came the Barrage at Galllub,
north of Cairo, but the construction
of this, the pioneer work of itt kind,
waa attended by all the dlfflcultlet
that arise from a bad foundation, dilatory officialdom and Oriental Ideas
ot finance. Large turns of moi,ey and
vast labor was expended; yet the Bar
rage failed and Itt failure to discouraged the Egyptian Government that
the whole question wat dropped.
From time to time suggestions were
put forward (or damming the river
or creating great reservoirs, but th*
former failure stood ln theway of new
efforts. By the early '80's Blr Colin
Scott-Monorleft had taken in hand
the Egyptian irrigation question, after
s distinguished carrer In India, and
sS hit assistant, tn 1383. came William
Wlllcc ks, who also hsd considerable
experience of Irrigation works ln India.
One ot hit tint works was th* repairing pf the Barrage, Snd tbe suc
cess that in 1887 attended this gave
new life to the question of reservoirs;
Sir Coiln Scott-Moncrleff deputed Col.
Western and Mr. WiUcocks to examine and report on tbe various scheme's
that had been brought before the government and then shelved.
Among these schemes were some
that proposed dams across tbe Nile
at different placet, but on examination It wat found that the river bed
wat quite unsuitable at the points
recommended. There wat also another reason why such of these
schemes aa might Include dams further south than AsBU-n were ���������suitable.
Some of tbe more Important summer crop* of Egypt are incapable of
standing a ten day drought, and these
crop* might perish while their supplies of water were flowing down the
river bed trom too remote a reservoir. It wat important, therefore,
that a dam, and the ttore ot water
held up by it, should be ai close a*
possible to the more extensive an 1
fertile stretches of cultivable land n
the northern country.
Assuan teemed to be the Ideal si j-,
where the requltlte conditiont couM
be obtained, and In 1889 Mr. .**. ill-
cocks went there to study the tie tn

Scientific
Selling
The commercial world is alive to the possibilities of
scientific manufacturing. Great strides are being made
in the application of a set of principles so sincere and simple that their value is noi open to doubt Scientific management is opening the way for greater efficiency and
greater economy in production.
The production of an article, however, is but one of
the processes through which it must go, and the giant task
is today and always has been to find the best method of
distributing what is produced.
Distribution frequently costs more than production.
Dollars will go further in their purchasing power and
standards of living will be generally enhanced in just the
proportion that distribution is simplified and economized.
Students of economic conditions are convinced that
the American system of selling has been extremely wasteful and manufacturers in many lines are now earnestly
considering not only what they may do to organize their
production on the most scientific basis, but also how they
may lessen the cost of selling and thereby make a greater
pro.f it, or give the consumer the advantage of a better article for the same money or the same article for less
money.
Intelligent advertising is a powerful aid in the solution of this vexatious problem.
It requires effort to sell goods and salesmen must be
paid for making this effort. A merchant buys goods to
sell them. He is interested in profit and retailing has
long since reached the point where quick sales with small
profits are more highly regarded than slow sales with
large profits.
The merchant realizes that well-advertised goods are
partially sold and that his trade, although the profit per
sale may be slightly less, is certain to be more brisk on
goods of this character.
The salesman who can offer to his trade a line of merchandise which is widely known and for which there exists a favorable prejudice can sell his wares with less effort than if he were handling an unknown article.
The manufacturer who is paying salesmen for making a sales effort obviously has to pay less price for less
effort. And this condition does not work against the
-talesman.    Hc can cover more territory, get a better
hearing and in tj&eVmg rui\ -tvu^kemo-re-motvey.
The scientific ideal endorses a straight Une a* tne
shortest distance between two points.
If a railroad is to be constructed from one-city to another the engineering ideal is an air line; but, of course,
grades must be leveled, streams crossed, other towns
taken into consideration, and a practical building of the
road means a departure from the ideal.
In merchandising we have a parallel case���the mare
who makes something and the man who wants something:
The selling ideal is a straight route from one of these men
to the other. But there are jobbers, retailers, competi--
tors and market conditions to be considered and in practical selling all these elements must be given due attention.
Advertising, however, provides a short route by which
the man who makes something may tell about it to the
man who wants such an article, and if enough persons are
told and taught, they will make their desires felt through
the retailer and the jobber. The manufacturer then gets
bis reward because he has his mark on his goods and he
alone can supply them.
His salesmen find it less difficult to sell the goods and
through this process, wisely conceived and courageously
conducted, many a business is bringing about a much more
wholesome condition in its selling.
Business men are learning that it is better and cheap*
er and economically more sound to get the bulk of trade
in a given line by identifying their merchandise and creating for it a wide demand.
It is not illegal or illegitimate to raise a business be-
vond the pale of competition by such methods and approach to a monopoly can frequently be built along these
Hnes.
If the man at the head of such a business sees with a
clear vision and does not unwisely take too great advantage of thc position thus secured, the people at large will
be the direct beneficiaries of his activities, big businesses
will be spared from pernicious molestation and all of the
advantages of great production and scientific distribution may be .realized.
It appears reasonable to us that the largest, eldest
and most highly organized advertising house in the world
is probably in a superior position to furnish counsel and
assistance to business men who are conf rtmted with such
problems. It is a noteworthy fact that we have been conspicuously successful in developing, frequently from
small beginnings, some very large advertising accounts

had to strike its colors to the Wanderers here last night, the final score
standing Wanderers 10, Quebec 6.
There is no doubt tbat the best
team won, for, although Quebec played good hockey in the first period
they were completely overmatched in
the second and third, the Wanderers
playing all around them. The champion's defence wus well enough, but
at times Moran had none ot his team

boards at the same time, with his

When it is considered that the--.-

of real sport.
With the boards in sight, Pili-ibtiry

at one time, but this record was surpassed by Bernstein, who played 7i

feats of memory almost as woi dcrful.
Chess and checkers hsve EVUly devotees among the professional-- ,u

Go Right to IL
From the drop of the puck In the
final i pasm, the Royals went at it in
slap bang fashion and following a
pretty sweep by Oatman, the Winnipeg amateur, Tobln, again got the
puck past Lindsay.
Nine minutes later Dunderdale, who
had been playing an individual game,
took an offside paas trom Poulin and
was allowed to go through for the
only tally.
'lhe puck wa* sent across at such
nn angle that the Westminster play-
<ts made no attempt to rtop the Victoria player, feeling* that either Grlffls or McDonald would Mow their
whistle but none sounded and the
score counted.
.Mm ly Gardnrr, with a feeling that
:i chutout would look mighty good,
argued the point with' Grlffls but to
no avail.
The grme Itself was one of tbe
fastest played on th* Vancouver Ice
this winter. Both teams appeared to
be In the pink ot condition and despite the fact that more body check-
lug was noticeable than In any two
games played hitherto, none of tb*
players received Injulrea with the
exception ot Walter Smaill, who
bumped into "Big Moose" Johnson.
The frail figure of Smaill oould not
stand the Impact with the burly
Itnyal and be took the count. He soon
came too, however, and again took
the ice, jnhuson staying on aa th*
officials looked upon the affair as a
pure accident. ,

here today on the steamer Campania
to make preparations for the coining
of the British polo team which will
meet the Americans In a aeries ot
games for the James Gordon unmet

Captain Miller represents the Duke
of Westminster, who purchased sever

financing tbe Invasion.
"It would not be fair to criticise
our team." said Captain Miller, "but
I will say tbat It is aa good if not bet
ter than the one we had two years
ago. We realise we ahall have a hard
struggle with the Americans. Expert
euoe has taught us that, but If our
horses and men are in good form, I
think we ought to be able to life thr

FROM SWITCHBOARD
1T0 m Of PIER
Lady    Ashburnham    Was   Telephone
Operator���Husband Fell in Wove
with Her Voice.
Fredertcton, N. B., Jan. 26.���Major
the Hon. Thomas Ashburnham, who
became tbe sixth Earl of Ashburham,
upon the death in Paris of his brother
Bertram, the fifth Earl of Ashburnham, left here last week and sailed
from Halifax to assume his new title
and possession of the estate, the Income derived from which Is said to be
upwards of $50,000 annually.
Since he has been residing here It
has been generally understood that
the new earl has been ln receipt of
some of the income, on which ho lived
rather quietly.
For ten or twelve years the new earl
haB been a resident of New Brunswick,
and most of the time he has lived in
this city, having married, during his
residence here, Miss Maria Anderson,
daughter of the late W. H. Anderson,
ot this city, a night operator of the
local telephone exchange.
She is an attractive woman, somewhat younger than her husband, who
was born ln 1855, and of recent years
she has been prominent in thc work
of the Daughters of the Empire and
other patriotic and charitable organizations.
It was her pleasing voice over the
telephone that won the attention and
love of the new earl.
The* new earl had a career ln the
imperial army from 1876, when he became an officer of the 7th Hussars "Until he retired in 1-900, having risen to
the rank of captain. He served
through the Egyptian campaign in
1882 as an A. D. C. to Sir Baker Russell, who commanded the 1st Cavalry
Brigade, and received the Egyptian
medals and decorations for that
campaign. He was also in South Africa with the Jameson raid. When the
28th New Brunswick Dragoons were
organized on March 1, 1911, he became a major in that corps.
Aside from his connection with mil-
tury affairs and being the leading
spirit of the Fredericton Cricket Club
for some years, the new earl has not
been prominent or even active in the
life of this city, although he attended
the usual social and official functions.
lt is recalled that on the occasion
of the recent visit of H. R. H., the
Duke of Connaught, that his Royal
Highness recognized in the new earl,
who was then major, the Hon. Thomas
Ashburnham, an acquaintance of the
Egyptian campaign and at one of the
social functions which. marked the
visit of the royal party here they had
a chat, recalled old times, the duke
greeting him with a "Hello, Tom."

of Natal Renders Tribute to
Memory.
Toronto, Jan. 26.���The Natal Witness, published in Pletermaritzburg,
In an lsBUe Just received contains an
appreciation of the life and work of a
distinguished Canadian who died recently ln South Africa.   .
The deceased gentleman was Sir
Henry George Elliot, K.C.M.G., C.B.
He was born at Perth, Ont., Christmas
Day, 1826, the son of the late Major

of Mrs. George Rennie, Stratford, wife
of Mr. George Rennle, Inspector of Inland Revenue, Stratford. A first cousin Ib Dr. C. S. Elliott, physician and
surgeon, 92 SL George street, Toronto.
The Natal Witness in its appreciation of the late Sir Henry G. Elliott,
whom it describes as among the great
consuls which Imperial Britain has
been able to command in all climes,
says:
"He served In the bombardment by
the British warships of Odessa and
Sebastopol and Balaclava. He was
mentioned In the despatches; secured
a medal and clasp; the Turkish medal
and the fifths-lass of the Order of Me-
dijidie.
He retired from the service with
the rank of major In 1887 and came
out to Natal in Aprii of that year. He
waB a strong ruler of the natives (he
was appointed Chief Magistrate in
1877); then Btern when the occasion

Ch'.ef Engineer
Berlin, Jan. 26.���The Federal coun
cil ha3 been debating for some time
the resolution of the Reichstag adopted in May, 1912. calling upon the Im-
per'al Chan.i ilor to put an end to
dueling in the army.
Its decision, whicb was presented
to the Reichstag Wednesday, is tanta-
mom t to a refusal to do anything. 11
declare-- that measures for putting an
end to duelling can only be adopted
when they apply to all classes and
seem likely to affect a change in the
universal views in regard to the safe-
gnard'T.p. ol honor.
It will be recalled that the Kaiser
wag severely scored for his stand on
this matter .
In reference to the demand ot tho
Reichstag that an officer fighting a
duel or issuing a challenge to one
shall be dismissed from the army the
Hundesrath.  or  federal  council  says.
"The infliction of such punishment
on an ofricer who on Ideal ground}
has risked his life in safeguarding his
honor would be absolutely unjustifiable and incompatible with the principles of lhe civil and military penal
code3."
A serious question raised at the
time of the discussion was In regard
to officers because of religious scruples were opposed to dueling. The
reply of the federal council to the
demand that no officer shall be dls-
mln'-'d for refusing to fight a duel
is a bare assertion   that  tne question
of tile appointment or rtismlsial of an
officer rests  with  the  Crown.

619 Hamilton St
Cape Town, Jan. 26. ���A strange unrest among the blacks in British East
Africa is giving rise to fears among
the white residents. Numerous letters are- appearing on the subject in
tho Nairobi Leader of British East
Africa.    One correspondent writes:
For some little time I have noticed
a stron? disinclination on the part ot
my Shamba boys to work while 1 am
not present. ParticB of them may be
seen patrolling uear my shamba for
some other motive, surely, than an attack on my teapot, while my Kikn-
yu 'chef.' is exhibiting symptoms of
absent-mindedness by cooking the tea
in the coffee pot, and vise versa, that
can only Indicate some great move
being on  the board.
"Another uneasy feature is the barking of my house dogs In the stilly
night when my house boys (not too
steady on their legs) return from
their conspirator's meetings.
"1 venture" to suggest a mobilization
of all the able bodied men In Nairobi
with shott-uns, rifles and ammunition,
with a march, headed by the town
band from the railway station to tbe
Norfolk hotel.
W. M. Wessels writes to the same
journal: "Within the last week or
two, nine of my bullocks have been
raided trom my farm, situated ln the
Nandi country, and as" yet the police
have not been able to offer me any
restitution or redress.
"Over and above this, my resident
manager has been Informed that there
's a strong chance of the Nandi, In
and about the district, attacking sett
lers in the near future, and naturally,
he wishes to remove himself and his
wife from such a danger zone, thus
Berlously affecting the occupation that
he is puttini- in tor me on the farm.
"I venture to ask the government
to permit a mobilisation of the settlers and frontiersmen in any district
sa affected, as possible means of aver
ting further stock thefts and possible
outrages on white settlers."
Paris, Jan. 26.���Viscount Alfred de
Breuil, a young French explorer, has
recently had n experience in empire
building which recalls the adventures
of M. Jacques Lebaudy. The French
explorer who had acquired some Influence over many primitive tribes in
Arabia and Syria, was approached In
1910 by a German named Nicholas
Benz.
The German proposed that the Viscount should return to Asia and Induce the tribes by presents to declare
their union and Independence and
elect him king. Subsequently the viscount should sell hs title and right to
the German emperor.
Viscount de Breuil was skeptical as
to tbe funds necessary for the undertaking, but when a Frankfort bank
sent a cheque for $40,000 to be paid
for tbe title of king of Arabia and of
Svria when it should have been obtained he agreed to embark on the
adventure.
Benz gave him an advance of $4600,
with which he departed for Arabia.
Some time afterwards twelve tribes
assembled in a "djema" at El Aloun
with the emirs who governed them,
and this assembly presided over by
Ab-.u Hassen. proclaimed the independence of Arabia and Syria, and elected
the viscount monarch with the title
of "King Alfred I."
Abou Hassen was made grand vizier, and the twelve emirs were ap-
rointed to be ministers. Further, a
solemn contract was drawn up forming a veritable charter. In the first
article It was stipulated that the Independent kingdom of Arabia and Syria should be placed under the protection of the Virgin Mary and of St.
Marius. The viscount de Breuil had
these documents authenticated by the
Egyptian authorities and did homage
to the apostolic delegate at Cairo.
Proud of his Buccess, the "king explorer" then returned to Paris to collect the $40,000. To his amazement
and disappointment he found that Nicholas Benz was in Jail, having been
sentenced to two year's mprlsonment.
Further, the viscount discovered that
Hens* had withdrawn the $40,000 from
the bank.
He lodged a charge ot embezzlement and one of swindling against
Benz, but as the funds had been Bent
from Frankfort to Uenz directly and
placed in a Parisian bank solely in his
name, the investigating magistrate decided that there was no ground for an
indictment.
WALKING  AROUND THE   WORLD.
Chief of Police Bars All Under Four-
tenn���Are Too Exciting for
Them.
Berlin, Jan. 26.���Herr Jagow, the
chief of police, In fulfilling his role ot
moral guardian of all Berliners, has
Issued an edict forbidding children
under 14 years of age to be admitted
to moving picture shows on the ground
that they are too exciting for them,
and are likely to have a bad Influence.
German officialdom altogther seems
to look coldly on the "movies." This
seems to be mainly because many of
the films present scenes which are regarded aB encouraging disobedience
to the established authorities. These
are chiefly American, English and
French.
The first two are especially condemned because of the Increasing
popular admiration for the freedom of
the Individual in those countries,
while the American and Indian cowboy fighting, rioting and cowpunching
are condemned as too exciting. "We
want our children to become peaceful
citizens, not cowboys," said Herr Jagow.
The children are much chagrined
over Herr Jagow'B order. Enquiries
as to the occasion for It brought out
the story that some of the American
films Inspired a feeling ln favor or
emigration In many Germans, and It ls
perhaps therein lies the main secret
of the new order.

EXPLORERS .'.ETURN
With More Information Upon Uncharted Himalayas.
Calcutta, Jan. 26��� t)r. and Mrs. Bullock Workman, the Himalayan explorers, have Just arrived in Bangalore
from their last eventful expedition,
aft-1- spending n few days In Bombay,
on their jounrney south. It Is their intention to rest and recuperate in Bangalore during the next ten weeks.
They    have    covered    much    new
ground this time -850 square miles to
be precise���and all the mountains and
glaciers have been mapped. Many
new ascents were made, rancjing from
an altitude of 19,000 feet to 21,000 feet,
to say nothing of camping for five
weeks at an elevation of 17,000 feet
By far the longest and largest glacier in Asia, the Blachen, has.now been
accurately located, which Ib the
party's most notable achievement this
season. This took place after the explorers had discovered two new watersheds between the Indus/and the Chinese Turkestan region, and the return journey was accomplished
through a hitherto unknown pass.
The main object of the expedition
was to complete the exploration of the
Blachen glacier, which Ib 60 miles in
length, in the Kurakoram mountains.
Not only has this heen achieved, but
a connection between the Si.ichcn
glacier ami the still unexplored Kon-
duB glacier hus been established.

The woman, Louise Brulia. aged
36, was washing a dog with a mixture
containing methylated, spirits, when
her apron, which had' obsorbed some
nf the spirit, burst into flame as she
passed an open fire.

Scoutmaster's Attempt to Win a
Wager of ��10,000.
London, Jan. 26.���Mr. C. J. Riming-
ton Taylor, who is the son of a London solicitor and Hon. Scoutmaster of
the Lord Mayor's Own Scouts, Cardiff,
has just passed along the North Wales
coast in his bold attempt to walk
round the world, and thereby win a
wager of ��10.000 made among his
l^ondon friends. The time allowed him
to complete the walk of 60,000 miles is
five years, and one of the conditions
of the wager is that he is not to receive help from anyone during the
long journey.
Interviewed by a correspondent, he
said that when he reached Cardiff he
would have traveled round the coast
of Great Britain, and would have covered 5000 miles of his self-imposed
task. He has performed odd jobs of
various kinds during his progress
through Wales, and has acted aa
painter, cobbler, and glazier each in
turn.
"I had some very rough experiences
in Scotland," said Mr. Taylor, "and
was hopelessly lost for three days during a severe snowstorm in the Highlands. My food consisted of half a
loaf, a candle and a raw rabbit which
I managed to kill. My bed was a hole
dug In the snow and lined with newspapers."
The intrepid scoutmaster has been
arrested on two occasions, and only
secured his released after satisfying
the authorities with regard to his Identity. He is now about to work his passage to America.

Lord Curzon ln his speech compared London, the capital of the British
Empire, with the empire itself. Both,
he said, had grown up unawares. As
to the city, he said that there had
never yet had been a great city which
had grown up with less forethought
and had rested less on a definite plan.
"London." he said," is already beautiful, in fits and starts, ln nooks and
corners, and In parts and Bections, but
no one can -jay that It Ib beautiful as
a whole. TheK are deformities in the
figure and black spots are in vain."
He suggested that the assistance of
parliament be Invoked in the matter
of legislatior for tha formation of a
combination oi all existing authority
with a central town planning authority, and also a redistribution of the
funds for the adjustment of local taxation. In such a case, he said, the
society would have to regulate the
erection of buildingB, the construction
of bridges, the laying out of roads
and the proper placing ot statutes,
whxh were now "so melancholy, pitiful and unalterably forlorn."
Commenting on London'B lack of
civic pride and civic feeling. Lord
Curzon said:
Lack of Civic Pride.
"London bas never been to an Englishman what Paris hag been to a
Frenchman, and what Berlin Is Increasingly becoming to a German. The
last thing an Englishman who has set
tied In the outlying districts of the
empire thinks of is the reproduction
In London of his own idea snd the
next is to get away from lt. The first
thing he does ls to make a race
course and the second Is to lay down
a golf course."

Editor News:
Sir,���Sapperton has a one horse
fire brigade, and when the alarm
rang this morning, and this wise animal saw the depth of snow ahead, he
refused to pull a loaded two horse
wagon up bill. That horse certainly
has sense. The firemen did the best
they could and started away on foot
packing the outfit. Fortunately the
fire did not amount to anything.
There was this, winter a petition extensively signed to have the fire hall
on top of tlie hill, and it is to be
hoped this has favorable consideration, as it is clear that the present
service cannot get the equipment 'o
